Paste to multiple locations

I can search , highlight and delete files but I'm wondering if it's possible to also paste into the various different locations found?

If it's not possible now would it be possible to build this in to a future build?

It would save an awful lot of time and lots of clocking!!

Thanks.

Re: Context menu-open path freezing Everything

Thanks..opening it from the file menu solves the problem.

Is there any way of removing the entries from the context menu but leaving them in the file menu?

I removed the open path and explore path in options but it seems to remove the entries in both the context menu AND the file menu.

Context menu-open path freezing Everything

If I try to open more than a few files with the open path or explore path with the right click context menu Everything freezes and I have to wait a long time before the command works.

As I have to use this several times a day it's getting very frustrating!!
